Abstract

Edward Connery Lathem, Librarian of Dartmouth College from 1968-1978, and Roderick ‘Rocky’ Stinehour, printer and owner of Meriden Stinehour Press led – along with Mark Lansburgh – the revival of the Graphic Arts Workshop at Dartmouth. While Lathem stayed at Dartmouth, Stinehour moved to Lunenburg where he began his Stinehour Press. The press’ international reputation meant that its publications are found in museums and libraries around the world. In 1981, Dartmouth bestowed an honorary degree of Doctor of Literature to Stinehour. He died in July 2016, aged 91. Here both men peruse Your Son, Calvin Coolidge, a work edited by Lathem and chosen as one of the Fifty Best Books of the Year (1968-1969) by the American Institute of Graphic Arts.
